Great Outdoors Month, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate our Nation's 
                natural heritage, reaffirm our commitment to conserve 
                our environment, and recognize the many volunteers who 
                help maintain our natural spaces.

                Americans are blessed by our country's expansive 
                landscapes, diverse wildlife, and beautiful public 
                lands. Outdoor recreation provides an opportunity to 
                enjoy the splendor of our Nation's remarkable natural 
                treasures and reminds us of our responsibility to be 
                good stewards of the environment.

                Across our great Nation, Americans are taking that 
                responsibility seriously and volunteering to help keep 
                our natural areas beautiful for future generations. I 
                commend these citizens for helping to protect our 
                public lands, and I encourage all Americans to do their 
                part. The Department of the Interior's Take Pride in 
                America website and the USA Freedom Corps website offer 
                examples of ways to participate in environmental 
                stewardship projects.

                We have an obligation to protect the Earth, and my 
                Administration is pursuing responsible initiatives to 
                make our air cleaner, our water purer, and our land 
                better protected. In doing so, we are demonstrating the 
                important principle that environmental protection and 
                economic prosperity are both vital parts of being good 
                stewards in the land we call home. Through these and 
                other efforts, we will continue to build a cleaner, 
                safer, and healthier environment for all Americans.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim June 2005 as Great Outdoors 
                Month. I call on all Americans to observe this month 
                with appropriate programs and activities and to enjoy 
                safe outdoor recreational activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                second day of June, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
